I actually camp with a friend who runs his AC full blast with the door open.
His attitude is that he is paying for the amps with the site fee so "why not."

Still a friend; still camp with him and his family; but it still raises my hackles.
I am also a realist and some things are just; "It is what it is..."

I bump mine to 85 during the day when I'm not there. 85 still feels amazing after it was 104 here yesterday.

I was a park ranger for 30 years. In that time I saw one camper fire and that was caused when hot grease was spilled on the stove and the burner ignited it. I agree, have fun, get good insurance, and don't worry.

I agree that the TT air can usually catch up quickly, but we still tend to turn up the thermostat just a little and then leave the air on when away from camp for a few hours or the day. Maybe its just me, but wouldn't not letting the rig heat up too much be important to the refrigerator's ability to maintain a continuous acceptable temperature on the hot days?

If you lived in Florida in the summer, as we do, this idea would never even occur to you ... let it run and have fun!!
